Snow Emergency/Snow Parking Ban

Effective 12am Wednesday, January 25th, 2023, through 7pm Wednesday, January 25th, 2023, parking will not be allowed on all Township streets. The parking ban is due to forecasted weather conditions.

This ban is for the safety of our plow drivers, safety services/first responders and the traveling public. This will also increase the plow driver's ability to clear the roads at a faster pace.

Residents shall park cars in driveways off roadways. Any vehicles that are found in violation of this parking ban may be ticketed or towed by the Plain Township/Stark County Sheriff’s Deputies.

Who Maintains this Road?

Many roads within Plain Township are maintained by other public entities. This can cause some confusion for Township residents as to who maintains the road.
